We were staying 3 nights in the resort. Since all villas were booked out we chose the Seabreeze premium room (just 1 of that in the resort). The room was extremely spacious, very cozy decorated and constructed and gave the feeling of sleeping next to the see due to its 360 degree openness. Still the room provided enough private feeling....

Perfect end to our Thailand trip. So relaxing, amazing views, beautiful rooms. We stayed in the beach villa room 1. Loved the complimentary boat tour to surrounding islands, free 15 min massage in the mornings, complimentary managers cocktails on certain nights. Resort has a small feel to it where u recognize and meet other guests easily. Staff is super helpful...

Koyao is a comforable and friendly resort which employs people from the local community and has a wonderful, friendly atmosphere. it is expensive for the accomodation offered, but it is on an exceptionally beautiful stretch of beach. We had a beach room for three nights which was large and comfortable with great views [much better than the partial beach views...

Truly beautiful and unspoiled. Beautiful landscape with the magnificent ocean view. Very nice décor villa and the most comfortable bed. Very relaxing place and plenty of activities for guests to enjoy. Amazing little touches from the hotel with the complimentary boat trip, yoga, bicycles and management cocktails. Beautiful view from the pool but the only downside is just a little...

Beautiful and authentic surroundings with an ocean view from all the cabins. Nice pool by the beach and plenty of sun beds. The staff at the restaurant is a bit slow and food and drinks are quite expensive.

Very nice and peaceful place with a fantastic view to the see. Super rooms and facilities. You could complain a bit about the price level in the restaurant and the breakfast are not something you will remember when you are back home. For sure I would like to come back again

It's a very nice hotel with an unspoiled view which invites you to relax and enjoy Thailand. However the restaurant is quite expensive and the breakfast buffet could do with an update to a higher level...it doesn't match the high level of the rest of the hotel. The rooms are of very high standard, in a relaxing way...

We stayed there for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it! The staff was very friendly and helpfull. When our room was visited by a bat, we were offered another room without any extra charge. Lovely restaurant and bar. I would highly recommend the complimentary kayaks and bikes. The island is beautiful!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our villas are built in the original Andaman Sea - gypsy style which is optimal for comfort and for the environment. We have used unique local resources with a traditional background while still maintaining, if not surpassing, all modern standards. The mangrove palm leaf roofs of our villas breathe and do not store heat, and air conditioners are definitely not needed.All villas have an undisturbed, spectacular sea view of the famous Phang Nga Bay and can be opened up to the stars at night - and in the morning the rising sun shines onto the beds. ... more   less
